About Corrugated Metals

We are proud to be a go-to partner to buyers, contractors, original equipment manufacturers, designers, and builders.

Corrugated Metals, Incorporated is a leading manufacturer of formed metal products, serving the Construction, Original Equipment, and Defense Industries. Our affiliated company – Infrastructure Defense Technologies, LLC – is engaged in the marketing and sale of defense products manufactured by CMI.

CMI was established in 1887 in Jersey City, New Jersey, but relocated its operations in the Midwest in 1991. Today, the company operates from a single location in Belvidere, Illinois. The company sells its products throughout the United States, and internationally.

Our manufacturing processes include roll forming, press-braking, mechanical power-press operations, shearing, cut-to-length and turret-punch operations. Our capabilities exceed those of our competitors.

Marketing Strategy

At CMI, we seek to develop long-term customer relationships in the markets we serve. We pursue three strategies to achieve this goal:

Develop/Introduce New Products

CMI aggressively develops new products which are typically driven by customer requirements.

Expand Capabilities

CMI regularly purchases equipment which provides new capabilities in support of new product development.

Enhance and Utilize Excess Capacity

CMI has abundant un-utilized capacity, which enables it to service customer requirements efficiently and effectively.

Commitment to Safety

CMI management and ownership places the highest priorities on safe practices in the plant. The company received SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) certification from the OSHA and the Illinois Department of Labor in 2017.

Commitment to Quality

CMI and IDT are both ISO 9001: 2015 registered. CMI is also registered with the American Association of Railroads for quality. From time to time, the company is required to do work to Nuclear Quality Assurance Standards (NQA-1). This process requires audits prior to and during production, as well as archiving after shipment.
